Meet Doc!

As of last weekend we have a new four-legged family member. Doc is an 8ish-year-old pointer my brother adopted through Illinois Shorthaired Rescue. We got word Doc is people-friendly, dog-friendly and just about everything-friendly, so I couldn’t wait to set up a meeting with his new cousins. I wasn’t
As of last weekend we have a new four-legged family member. Doc is an 8ish-year-old pointer my brother adopted through Illinois Shorthaired Rescue. We got word Doc is people-friendly, dog-friendly and just about everything-friendly, so I couldn’t wait to set up a meeting with his new cousins. I wasn’t the only excited one.11.1

“Omygosh, Eko guess what!? We have a new friend!”

11.2

Welcome home, Doc

11.3

True to his resume, Doc is a sweet boy and happily introduced himself to the gang

11.4

Penny was thrilled to have a new pal and she stuck right to Doc’s hip. Literally.

11.5

“Soo…is she always like this, or what?”

Worried Doc might get overwhelmed, I considered bringing Penny inside. But the two quickly settled into a playful report and Doc gave as good as he got.

11.6

“Alright old man, you still got some life in ya!”

We only had time for a quick first meeting, but Doc, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. We have lots to learn about Doc and he has lots to learn about us, but we at least sure Doc knows what the word “treat” means.

11.7

“Did I hear someone say ‘treat?'”

He should fit right in. Looking forward to lots of fun adventure with the newest addition to our gang.

    Hi Doc!!!! Oh course they all get on – who couldn’t like your two kids and Doc well he is a GSP at the end of the day (no bias on my part tee hee). Fantastic, I’m so happy for James and thrilled for Doc, at 8ish he deserves to be loved in his getting into slightly senior years. Snuggles to you all.

  14. dashlilly says:

    How terrific. I took my two this Christmas to spend time with their cousins. True to form Dash loved every minute of it with the humans, the big labs and the little shih tzu and Lilly spent most of her time sitting next to me or worse when we were outside she sat next to my car!! Glad to see Doc is a dog’s dog as well as a people dog!

  15. KarenS says:

    Welcome to the pack Doc. You’re a lucky pup to land where you did with people that love you and a couple of crazy RR’s to play with.

  16. Doc is GORGEOUS!!! I can see he fits right in with the rest of the family. He’s most definitely HOME! πŸ˜€

  17. Love it. I might be ready to take the step after losing our pup. FYI, I posted today about finding social media gold and linked to this blog as one of my 3 examples. Hope you see a lot of traffic. http://www.AnEclecticMuse.blogspot.com
